Edits using audacity lose the art

Recently noticed when using audacity to edit an mp3 file, after making the edits and exporting the file to replace the existing file, the album art or cover is lost. The art was in the file prior to moving to audacity for editing.
Love your program

thanks

This seems to be a known problem/issue with Audacity:

Audacity does not support cover art, so any audio files exported from Audacity are guaranteed to not have embedded artwork.

The Metadata Editor in Audacity does not show a cover art field, because Audacity does not support cover art. There's a long-standing feature request for Audacity to embed artwork, but so far it doesn't, and there are no immediate plans to embed images in exported files.

I don't see anything that Mp3tag could do in this matter in any way.

OK thanks for the response, fortunately, MP3Tag makes it easy to fix.
